Believe it or not, Osaka produces grapes.

It used be the 2nd grape production prefecture in Japan long time ago, but still now, it’s Osaka’s agricultural specialty.

There are vineyards in eastern part of Osaka prefecture which is called Kawachi Region and some of them are for wineries.

There was the event to celebrate 100th anniversary of Katashimo Winery last month.





Would you like to taste Osaka Wine?

About a week ago, I went to Sumiyoshi Grand Shrine just to walk around.


Then I happened to see the wedding.


I have seen some brides and grooms but this was my first time that I actually saw the wedding ceremony at Sumiyoshi Grand Shrine.

Taga Shrine


In Kojiki, the oldest Japanese history book filled with myths, the deities Izanagi and Izanami created the lands of Japan, and bore lots of deities that are enshrined all over Japan.


Taga Shrine enshrines Izanagi and Izanami.

There are the photos I took on March 21st.

There are some buildings from Edo era too.



Taga-cho is in Shiga Prefecture, next to Hikone City.

Just across from the shrine, there is a quaint street of souvenir shops.


Itokiri-mochi, a kind of sweets is their specialty.

It’s very healthy and convenient. I like organic food, but it is hard to find in the southern part of Osaka.

Yuki Saryo by Solviva, (有機茶寮 by Solviva) offers Japanese fast food, such as brown-rice balls, soup, curry and rice ( if you considered it’s Japanese), and some desserts and soft drinks. which is on the second floor in Namba City.

My favorite menu is this.

It’s called “Mampuku-jiru Teishoku”. It’s the combo of miso soup with vegetable, mainly roots, two brown-rice balls. You can choose two kinds. If you are a vegan, choose the ones such as walnut, plum, and so on. At the counter, there is English explanation for the ingredients of brown-ice balls.

When the weather is nice, you can eat outside.
